Senate Economic Development Committee hearing canceled in wake of ongoing Senate session

Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, and Detroit Regional Chamber were among those expected to testify in support of the New International Trade Crossing

LANSING, Mich. – Today’s Senate Economic Committee Hearing regarding the New International Trade Crossing (NITC) has been canceled due to the ongoing Senate session.

Those expected to testify in support of the NITC were representatives from Chrysler, Ford Motor Company, General Motors, and the Detroit Regional Chamber as well as former Supreme Court Justice Cliff Taylor.

There are more than 120 business, labor, and community leaders and organizations representing more than 10,000 businesses and hundreds of thousands of Michigan employees supporting the construction of the publicly owned Detroit-Windsor bridge.

The proposed NITC will bring a $1.3 billion investment to the state, leverage more than $2 billion in federal matching highway funds, and provide an estimated 10,000 construction jobs with no cost to Michigan taxpayers.
